Roll up, roll up for panto fun!


STRATFORD-UPON-AVON ArtsHouse is putting on the pantomime Aladdin this year and is inviting local people to join the professional cast.

There will be open auditions to give young performers the opportunity to participate in this year’s show.

The production team will also be staging a talent competition, Stratford’s Got Talent, where judges, including the Herald’s art correspondent, Gill Sutherland, will be looking to find two local people over the age of 17 to play the roles of Aladdin and Princess Jasmine.

Jenna Harvey, General Manager of the ArtsHouse, said: “We are thrilled to be working with a new producer, and together we will create the most spectacular pantomime that Stratford has ever seen!

“There will be mischief, mayhem and laughter for all the family. Be sure to book early to make sure you are a part of this year’s magical carpet ride!”

Aladdin will run at the ArtsHouse from Monday, 12th to Tuesday, 27th December.

Tickets are now on sale, with an early bird offer until Sunday, 22nd May.
